Midleton Distillery Experience, Cork
Whiskey has been distilled at Midleton Distillery since 1825 and today, every drop of Jameson, Powers, Redbreast, Spot Whiskeys, Method & Madness and Midleton Very Rare enjoyed anywhere in the world is produced here, just 20 minutes’ drive from Cork City.
No two days are ever the same in your role as Brand Ambassador, which offers lots of variety and challenge, with the opportunity to rotate across different areas of the distillery experience – including our fantastic retail facility, our buzzing bar or delivering one of our wide range of tours. One day you could be hosting our multi-sensory experiences/tours and tastings, the next you could be greeting our guests at reception or showcasing and selling our whiskeys in our on-site retail store. Unlike our whiskey maturation process, which takes its time, the pace at Midleton Distillery Experience is a fast-paced; a buzzing environment where our customer first approach isn’t just a mantra, we live and breathe it – every day.
